I used it before and it works fine. No, you do not have to dry off your car.

The water is purified and doesn't allow the calcium to be put on your car to form the water spots. That is why you don't have to dry you car afterwards.

Personally I think this is a wussy way to clean your car. I like to touch it and make sure its really clean, nothing beats towel drying your car. But my brother bought it and he says it works alright. Not my style though.

I'm mixed.

I don't like paying 6.00 for the soap. The machine only works with the Mr. Clean Soap; it'll clog if it's not the Mr. Clean stuff.

I also don't like paying 6.00 for the filter that I get five uses out of, even though it says ten.

When its new (filter), your car will dry 90% spot free if it's black, probably more if its not black. Don't expect miracles if the sun is shining down on it, though.

As far as I'm concerned, there is no such thing as a 100% self-drying, unless you dry it yourself, which makes it not self drying .

I use it because in california the sun is always shining and by the time you dry one side of the car the other side is already dry with spots, and the side that you just dried with a towel has all kinds of lint unless you use a microfiber towel, which is just smearing the water around until it dries which still leaves a film of calcium on the paint. Oh, and it does work with other brand of soaps, it just doesn't foam very much, but it still works. It's better that putting you hands in a bucket of soap, and putting dirt back on your car. Also, i haven't ever bought a new filter, i'm still using the the one that came with the kit, and i havn't had any spots yet. To each their own though.

I'm going to buy some to try. I think I would use it a lot for when I just want to a quick wash/rinse, still sounds cheaper in the long run than running it through a wash. I can still get my hands dirty whenever I want to detail it.

Just remember that you still should use a sponge...the soap doesn't always take all the shit off the car.

It works well when the filters are new, but they don't last long.

I've used it it a few times on 2 different cars. My Red G6 and a Dark Gray Jaguar Type S. It does a pretty good job.

Mr. Clean Auto Dry

It's alright. I used it on my red Grand Am and it made the car look fairy nice and shiny. As for no water spots, that's not true, you do need to towel off the spots that don't dry within 5 minutes or else you'll get some. I like to use Mr. Clean when I only have 10-15 minutes to wash the car, otherwise I do it the old fashioned way and towel dry.

I go across town to hand wash my cars at a wand-type place. I then use the spot free rinse. Then, 1/4 block away, I get on the interstate and blow-dry rhe ship out of it at 90-100 mph on the way back to town. Works great- very few spots...

LOL, I used to do the drive fast blow dry of my car but the dang roads around here are too crowded these days. I can never get above 45MPH in town :-(

That's why I drive 10 miles out, so there is less traffic for my wind tunnel spot-free hellride. There are several closer ones, and the one I go to is in a very bad part of town (think "Deliverance"), but the things we do for love...
